This year I met a bunch of fashion bloggers that I'd been speaking to (again online) and we had an AMAZING day and night getting to know each other in person. I've since met some again and we are planning a big weekend in London already next year!
Yesterday I met some great ladies. They post online via Avenue 57 and we finally plucked up the courage to meet in Birmingham. Everyone was nervous beforehand but there really was no need - we all clicked, chatted, moved around the table to speak to everyone and it was absolutely fantastic to put real names and faces together. I have to say that we were THE MOST STYLISH table at the Jamie Oliver restaurant!
Here's what I wore
Necklace - Wallis (old) (but they do have some amazing necklaces online and in the sale)
Jumper - Avenue 57 Pop Up Shop
Wax coated jeans - Oasis (similar here)
Boots - so old - I mean like 15 years + old!
Here's what they wore
Here's us all at lunch (I love it that Jane from My Midlife Fashion has the menu up to protect her anonymity!)
Here's my surprise dessert which was so sweet of Helen to organise. Who knew a nearly 40 yr old could blush quite as much as I did. It's WEIRD blushing as a grown up and not knowing what to do about it!
The ladies were SUPER kind and bought my lunch as a birthday gift to me. I am very much looking forward to the next meet up which will involve an overnight stay, lots of alcohol and shopping!
Thank you ladies for making me feel VERY VERY special and I love it that I have made some new real friends :-)
Have you met 'strangers' in real life after striking up a friendship online? Also, when was the last time you blushed?!!
